Fix aspect ratio typo and recalculate padding in embed block CSS #16573

As discussed with @jasmussen here, there is a typo in the selector for the 9:16 aspect ratio. The ratio is listed accurately here:

// Add responsiveness to common aspect ratios.
&.wp-embed-aspect-21-9 .wp-block-embed__wrapper,
&.wp-embed-aspect-18-9 .wp-block-embed__wrapper,
&.wp-embed-aspect-16-9 .wp-block-embed__wrapper,
&.wp-embed-aspect-4-3 .wp-block-embed__wrapper,
&.wp-embed-aspect-1-1 .wp-block-embed__wrapper,
&.wp-embed-aspect-9-16 .wp-block-embed__wrapper,
&.wp-embed-aspect-1-2 .wp-block-embed__wrapper {

But here it has been changed to 9:6:

&.wp-embed-aspect-9-6 .wp-block-embed__wrapper::before {
padding-top: 66.66%; // 6 / 9 * 100

Given that aspect ratios are sorted in ascending order by the required top padding, it appears the second code excerpt should be:

&.wp-embed-aspect-9-16 .wp-block-embed__wrapper::before {
	padding-top: 177.77%; // 16 / 9 * 100

This pull request fixes the typo and recalculates the value for padding-top.

I considered whether the intention could be to use 9:6 as an aspect ratio in addition to 9:16, but presumably that would have been listed as 3:2, so I believe 9:16 was the intended aspect ratio all along.


  • My code is tested.
  • My code follows the WordPress code style.
  • My code follows the accessibility standards.
  • My code has proper inline documentation.
  • I've included developer documentation if appropriate.
Fix rounding
Second decimal place should be rounded up (to match values in ASPECT_RATIOS constant)
